Felt a bit sluggish yesterday, I could barely keep my eyes open at work. After the workout my ass was kicked. I'm still feeling a bit slow this morning, so I'm gonna go home directly after work and go to bed ... I cant wait.

Yeah it hit me today really hard about 2hrs ago. its the start of a sinus infection, i can feel it already. My head started hurting, and so did my jaw. I took an alevert, and will go pick up more for the rest of the week.

atleast I caught it early, sinus infections can knock me out for a week or more if left unchecked.

you only say that because you have the exact opposite going on anuj. If your max squat was 50+ lbs lighter then your max bench, you'd be mad as hell. The quads are the largest muscle in the body (save one ) there is no legit excuse that they should be weaker then my pecs.

Update Wed:

training

DeadLift: 4 total working sets, ended with 315x5

Standing MP: 3 total working sets, ended with 145x5

front squats: 3 total working sets, ended with 145x5

Diet

1pm - 1/2 cup oatmeal 15g bcaa
4pm - 1 can tuna, 1/2 cup basmati rice
6pm - pre workout shake
8pm - post workout shake
10pm - two checken breats with cheese and some red gravy, and a cesar salad.

Notes

I woke up at 7:30am for work and felt like shit, head ache, body aches, just plain run down. I called out of work, and didnt wake up again till around 1. I took some alavert to clear my sinus headache and relaxed most of the day.

Overall the wieghts moved fairly easily. I will have to adjust the MP's down slightly, since its a 9 week program i dont want to over due it to early, and I think I over estimated my wieghts on them.

I also had a little problem with the MP's due to the fact I did DL prior to them. My lower back was weak as shit, and I felt unstable to say the least. I may either switch the order, or move to seated MP's. Not quite sure yet.

Why? That's just how high the spreadsheet goes. Madcow figured everyone would have the idea by then so he stopped there. There is no time limit to it. It's as long as you can progress unless you have a specific reason to limit it.

Feel better soon.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I am only running this 9 weeks, not because of the spreadsheet, but because of the what the workload will look like at the end of that 9 weeks. At that point I will back off, take a week off, or deload, then get back up on it. It may even go less then 9 weeks, we will see what my body can handle.

good look eric.
